AN INTRODUCTION TO COURAGEOUS
“I’ve been munching pains for so long
a diet without nourishment
without a hope boiling”
The excerpt above readily aligns with Mark Twain’s, ‘Courage is not the absence of fear. It is acting in spite of it.’
So, acts of courage are interesting to listen to. Watching them too would create phenomenal effects. But courage is, first of all, a desire, then, a state of mind, an ambition, an effort, and work.
When we desire everything good and perfect and reserve imaginations of them in our mind, and aspire for them and work to realize them against all odds, we are indeed courageous.
The twenty-five poems contained in this chapbook manuscript titled ‘Courageous’ range from courageous desires through achievements.
